Description: A recent survey revealed that only one third of cardiologists acknowledged the existence of racial/ethnic disparities in cardiovascular care in general, and only 5% agreed that disparities existed in their own practice. Several professional and industry organizations have been established to bring attention to and address these disparities. Drs. Ofili, Leggett, and Ventura discuss the importance of recognizing disparate care and suggest strategies to ensure that patients with cardiovascular disease from all racial and ethnic groups are treated equitably.
